5.0 out of 5 stars Could Become a Cult Classic — Jams Every Cliche Into One Package, November 29, 2013
This could become a cult classic, at least among those of us that have been spies or love spy movies. This was my Thanksgiving break in Afghanisgan, and so good I have put it on background a couple more times as I work on curating Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog.
Heigl is not quite as great as in The Ugly Truth, but this movie has crammed into it every single cliche from across a range of spy movies down to all your neighbors being sleepers and a grand shoot-out in the end, so I for one am very tolerant of the little hic-ups across the movie. It's a low budget hoot and they got to visit Monaco.
On the strength of this movie and being reminded how great she was in The Ugly Truth I have ordered One For The Money and expect to enjoy that. Remember, this is the woman whose orgasm scene in the restaurant rivals Meg Ryan's original in When Harry Met Sally.
Also, the prices on these are extraordinary — under 2-4 dollars! I use my computers for more important stuff, so it's nice to have the hard DVD to put the TV on the side to work.
Other great DVDs along these lines:
Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Full Screen Edition)
The Men Who Stare at Goats
Human Target: The Complete First Season
From Paris With Love
I recommend a total of 133 DVDs at the bottom of the second column of Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog. All my reviews are there, and all lead back to their respective Amazon page.
Best wishes to all,
